Third in this decade's programme of reread fantasy series: Robin Hobb's Assassin-Ship-Fool metatrilogy. I read the first series back before I started writing reviews.
Assassin's Apprentice(2011-01-09): the first Farseer book, telling the story of Fitz's childhood and his first mission for the Farseer court. Things happen rapidly in this book, almost to the point of the ending seeming rushed; the pace is less hectic later on in the series, as tends to happen with epic fantasy. The other striking thing is how small a part the Fool plays, given his later importance.
Royal Assassin(2011-01-12): I'd forgotten just how much fun Nighteyes is as a character.
Assassin's Quest(2011-01-17): I didn't like this one very much the first time I read it (too much time spent travelling). I had more patience on the reread, and it turned out I remembered more of this one than I did the later (Fitz/Fool) books.
Ship of Magic,
The Mad Ship,
Ship of Destiny(2011-03-13): no particular comment this time round.
The Golden Fool,
Fool's Fate(2011-02-26): well, these make a lot more sense when read after the Ship novels (as I failed to do last time; it appears to be a common problem, talking to friends). It's made clear that they happen chronologically after the Dragon books, though.
